the bush administration ignored repeated warnings about osama bin laden's plans to attack the united states. writing in "the new york times," journalist and author kurt eichenwald reports the bush administration dismissed a number of warnings of an al qaeda attack in u.s. beginning in the spring of 2001, instead focusing on saddam hussein. in one assessment, eichenwald writes -- some counterterrorism officials were so dismayed with the administration's response that they discussed seeking a transfer so that others would be blamed when the attack on the u.s. eventually took place. the suggestion was dismissed because there would not be enough time to train replacements. the u.s. military has disclosed a guantanamo prisoner died over the weekend in his cell. the victim's identity has not been released, but he is said to have taken part in a hunger strike in the prison earlier this year. he is believed to be the ninth foreign prisoner to die at guantanamo since the u.s. began jailing foreigners there in 2002. several prisoners have taken their own lives. the u.n.'s top human rights official ha
